Many years ago, in a little sitio named “Dologon” which was then a part of Barangay CAsisang, the inhabitant were mostly natives. In 1957, people from different places migrated to the small community. The population started to grow and from them two leaders emerge in the person of Mr. Juan Tadlas and Mrs. Vicenta Tilanduca who wanted to elevate the status of the place from Sitio to Barrio. The leaders called for a meeting and discussed the proposal. In 1958, after several months of hardwork and with the approval from the Province Board of Bukidnon, the sitio became Barangay Magsaysay. Mrs. Vicenta Tilanduca became the first elected Barangay Captain.
